Edi’s Shaders for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

Edi’s Shaders for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

Edi’s Shaders mod 1.12.2 is a nifty, realistic shader that works with Minecraft versions 1.12.X & 1.11.X. Before attempting installation or anything, you should make sure you have a compatible version of the Shader Mod by Karyonix installed in your mods directory first. Edi’s Shaders mod needs that mod to work.

The main thing accomplished by Edi’s Shaders pack is to make Minecraft look more realistic with things like lens flares when looking towards the sun, ripples and waves in bodies of water, realistic clouds rather than the blocky, ugly things you normally get, and an overall increase in FPS on top of all this. It’s hard to believe that any shader mod would actually lead to Minecraft getting more frames per second, but Edi’s Shaders mod manages to do it for some users. For the greatest improvement in FPS, you’ll also need to be using Optifine alongside this shader pack.

Because there are three different versions of Edi’s Shaders mod, it’s hard to nail down any specific requirements, but easy to say what each version needs. V1 was the first version, and it’s also the one which gives the best FPS among the three. It doesn’t have any special requirements. V2 has new water and cloud effects, which do increase the demands on your GPU. However, it is not compatible with AMD brand graphics cards, so keep that in mind. V3 fixes that compatibility issue and lets Edi’s Shaders work with AMD cards, but the water is seriously buggy.

If you want a realistic shader pack that actually manages to make Minecraft run more smoothly and quickly in some cases, then you should take a long, hard look at Edi’s Shaders mod. With “fake” volumetric clouds and realistic lighting and water effects, it’s one of the best looking shaders for Minecraft 1.12.2 and 1.11.2. Again, if you’re using Minecraft 1.13, this shader mod isn’t going to work for you, so keep that in mind too. This is a pretty good mod overall, and with three different versions to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits you.

Hello, I like the pictures that you provide and I think they look cool. However, when opening up the game, my Minecraft crashed. It wouldn’t give me the crash report, but please look in to it.


Albeit is not really perfect but still great, the Edi s Shaders Pack is one of the best shader pack if you happen to own a midrange PC yet still want to try the beauty of Minecraft in full HD resolution.




I have to say good job I have been looking for a good shader for awhile. I think this one wins most shaders I have tried makes the sun way to bright. Which makes the world look washed out this one does what I want a shader to look like. The only problem I have is the performance on shaders like chocapic I can use the medium preset. I get 120 to 135 FPS but with this shader, I get 93 to 104 and sometimes it dips into the late 80’s but I use it because it looks good.
